The certification comes from the Responsible Fisheries Management Group.
Bering Select (Dutch Harbor, Alaska), a manufacturer of omega-3 ingredients derived from wild-caught Alaskan cod, announced it has received certification from the Alaskan Responsible Fisheries Management (RFM). Alaska RFM is benchmarked by the Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative and also aligns with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization’s Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries.
Bering Select works with fishing operations that harvest cod in the Bering Sea, and it performs omega-3 ingredient manufacturing at its facility in Dutch Harbor.
In a press release, the company’s president, Joel Watson, stated, “Alaska RFM provides credible standards for sustainable fishing and supply chain traceability. Consumers and brand partners can feel confident that omega-3 ingredients sourced from Alaska RFM–certified fisheries provide documented, third-party assurance of responsible seafood sourcing policies.”
